The table provides up-to-date information on open source packages that have been ported and/or validated on corresponding distro versions by IBM. The information includes links to packaged binaries and/or document for building them on Linux on IBM Z. In addition, Dockerfile/Image column provide links to Dockerfile or docker image for some packages. Binaries/Docker images once made available by community, are no longer validated. Refer to the official documentation for any further information.
How up-to-date is it?
As we continue to port/test new packages, this table will be updated whenever the work on a new package is completed. We also update this table at least once a week.
What if a package I’m interested in is not in the table?
Please submit request via email or comment. We will prioritize based on business need. Please note while we may not be able to validate every open-source package, many of them work out of box, especially those written in languages that don’t need to compile into native code, eg. Java, Ruby, Python, etc. Give it a try, it might just work! A package not in this table doesn’t necessarily mean it doesn’t work on the platform, there might be other non-IBM party that have enabled open source software on Linux on IBM Z too, search on web could be helpful.
NA — Not yet tested/Not Available/Not Applicable. Distro — Available in Linux distribution. Search distro by apt-cache search, zypper search or yum search. latest — Link to latest information, instruction to install or use latest binaries. Download — Link to download page. Image — Link to docker image available at the time of updating this table. Links are based on search results from Docker Hub, subject to change anytime. Search directly from Docker Hub will provide more accurate availability. * — This project is no longer maintained by community, no additional verification will be done.
